In this part of the country the 20 quart ( 5 gallon) box of powdered milk is a much better buy than the 8 quartbox. You get a much cheaper price per gallon that way.

Subject: Budget101.com : dry milk vs liquid again
I just bought both at the stores I shop at and looked at my bills for
these. I live in the San Francisco Bay Area, FYI.
A container of dry milk that makes 8 quarts (or 2 gallons) is $8.28
(grocery store brand). That’s a cost of $4.14/gallon using dry milk.
A half-gallon of liquid milk is $2.49 or a cost of $4.98/gallon for
liquid milk (we use the paper containers from Trader Joe’s; if gallon
containers came in anything besides plastic we’d get those to save on
the price of milk).
So, I would save 84-cents per gallon by using exclusively dried
instead of liquid milk. Since my kids know the difference in taste
when I give them the powdered vs. liquid (and they don’t like the
taste), what I am doing is using the dry when cooking and the liquid
for drinking; I hope we can save some pennies this way.
Just another milk comparison for everyone to see.
